Consultation response on a new tribunal system for Scotland

The CAS consultation response the the Scottish Government's proposals for a new tribunal system for Scotland

Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) are broadly supportive of reform to the Scottish Tribunal System which incorporates and builds on the positive features of an accessible, independent, user-focused system.

Tribunals play an important role in providing an alternative to the formalities and traditions of Court-administered justice. In complement to the Scottish Court Service (SCS), tribunals contribute to the access to justice landscape and CAS and welcomes the broad principle of incorporating the Scottish Tribunal System with the Scottish Court Service – provided the nature of tribunals is maintained.
